Yesterday, President Donald Trump gave an unscheduled, impromptu, thirty-minute interview to New York Times veteran reporter Michael Schmidt at Trump’s luxurious Mar-a-Lago golf resort in Palm Beach, Florida. That is the newspaper that Mr. Trump constantly bashes in his public comments. In this interview, the president said so many outrageous things that you’d think he was mentally deranged. One of them was this prediction about his planned re-election for president in 2020: “Another reason that we’re going to win another four… Read more

  President Trump was playing golf earlier this week. CNN showed him hitting a particular chip shot, with trees barely blocking a full view. When he made the shot, apparently from close to the green, his swing was so bad. On his downswing, his upper body lunged and dipped atrociously. When he made ball contact, his club gouged the turf and stuck. (We couldn’t see if he hit the ball or where it went.) In golf parlance, that is called… Read more

I think it’s pretty obvious by President Donald Trump’s constant trashing of the FBI and the Mueller investigation that he colluded with the Russians to win the presidency last year. Whether or not the Justice Department’s special counsel Robert Mueller and his team will be able to prove it and/or related things before the court, or convince Congress of it enough to lead to impeachment, remains to be seen. But Trump’s constant disparagement of the FBI and Mueller’s investigation gives… Read more

After U.S. President Donald Trump recently declared that the U.S. recognizes Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu stated, “I think what it does is finally recognize a historical truth. Jerusalem has been the capital of Israel for 3,000 years from the time of King David.” What do you think? Is Netanyahu right? Then Netanyahu said of Jerusalem, “It has been the capital of Israel for 70 years.” I thought he just said Jerusalem was the… Read more

In 1981, Israel defied international consensus by declaring all of Jerusalem as the “undivided, eternal capital of Israel” even though Israel had taken possession of East (Old) Jerusalem in the Six-Day War of 1967, so that the UN, according to its principles, regarded it as “occupied territory” that should be returned to its previous owners, the Palestinians, by negotiation. Yet on December 6, U.S. President Donald Trump defied international consensus by announcing that for the first time the U.S. recognizes… Read more

I won the Canadian Open in 1970 at the London Hunt and Country Club in London, Ontario, CANADA. Two years prior, a boy was born in Ontario. The boy’s father, with the last name Zalapski, knew of me as a PGA Tour pro golfer. So he named his son after me–Zarley Zalapski. You’d think this boy’s father had a sense of humor to name his son that. People have always kidded me about my unusual name, including Bob Hope. But… Read more

U.S. President Donald Trump has been bashing the FBI throughout his presidency. Only weeks as president, Trump had to fire three-star general and National Security Advisor Michael Flynn for lying to the FBI and Vice President Mike Pence. Soon afterwards, Trump subtly asked FBI Director James Comey to end his investigation of possible Russian meddling in our election. When Comey refused, Trump fired him. Then Attorney General Jeff Sessions recused himself from dealing with this investigation because he had talked… Read more

The New York Times reported today that the U.S. Defense Department’s annual $600 billion budget has $22 million earmarked for investigating UFOs. What! I thought we ended that inquiry when the U.S. Air Force shut down its 27-year old Project Blue Book in 1969. (I was an Air Force reservist from 1965 through 1971.) Not so. The U.S. government’s investigation of UFOs was somewhat reborn in 2007 when Democrat Harry Reid of Nevada, then the Senate majority leader, got a… Read more

After many centuries, Israel became reestablished as a nation in 1948. In 1967, Israel fought the Six-Day War and took East Jerusalem, where many of its holy sites are located. In 1981, Israel declared Jerusalem as the “undivided, eternal capital” of Israel. But being a member of the UN, this declaration was against a UN principle–any UN member that enters into war with an enemy and obtains possession of land previously possessed by that enemy must thereafter return that land… Read more

For many years, Saeb Erekat has been the Palestinian Authority’s primary negotiator in the peace process, which has no longer existed for some time, in the ongoing Israeli-Palestinian conflict. His official title is chief of the PLO (Palestinian Liberation Organization) Steering and Monitoring Committee. He recently responded to what U.S. President Donald Trump did last week. Trump fulfilled a campaign promise by announcing that the U.S. now recognizes Jesus as the capital of Israel and that next year the U.S…. Read more
